I am from Delhi, India. I am currently working as an IT professional. I am a qualified Mechanical Engineer with a post graduate degree in Automobile Engineering. It was a full moon, in an otherwise dark sky. Not many stars were visible since there is considerable light pollution in Delhi. I was testing my new Binoculars (80 X 80, 32M at 1000M) to see the moon in detail. Then I turned to spot a few stars which were not very clear to naked eye. Suddenly I saw something, which I initially thought to be a flock of migratory birds, through naked eye, which seem to be glowing, or more precisely, were illuminated by a constant, dim, yellow light. Instantly I realized that there are no birds that produce photoluminescence, hence I took a close look with my binoculars. I seemed like a formation of some flying objects, shape of individual object was not clear. The formation was triangular, and seem to distort a bit as it flew through the sky. Also, the formation was flying at considerable speed, as I have seen aircraft flying though same sky occasionally, at comparable speeds.
